Fire Door Drop Testing
With roughly 100,000 nonresidential fires each year, it’s important to make sure your commercial property is up to current standards. Fire doors play a big role in this fight, as they help stop the spread of fire throughout your building. Fire doors are part of a buildings passive protection system, working to contain fires in common areas where they start such as kitchens and electrical rooms, and prevent the spread of fires through channels such as hallways and staircases.
While there are many different types, all fire doors are designed to close in the event of a fire or alarmed event. Whether it’s a dropdown, swinging, or sliding door, it’s important the door can close on demand and withstand high temperatures.
